Jeffy and Unity

JEF United was the first team to stumble onto the licensing magic of the "family motif". When the J.League was founded they already had two mascots -- the brothers "Jeffy" and "Unity". Unfortunately this left their prospects of expanding the family with offspring a bit limited. Nevertheless, the two Shiba breed dogs have done their part, selling a huge volume of uniforms with the numbers 2 (worn by Jeffy) and 9 (worn by Unity).  

In case you were wondering, the numbers "ni" (2) and "ku" (9) in Japanese form the word "niku", which means meat. Where's the beef? probably in Kobe.
